Nigerian mobility startup Max.ng raised $7M to expand across 10 West African cities

(Togo First) - Nigerian mobility startup Max.ng recently raised $7 million to expand to 10 West African countries, boost its steam and develop in the coming years a transportation and delivery system using three-wheelers.

The money was secured from a group of African and non-African investors, includng capital-risk firm Novastar Ventures and Japanese company Yamaha Motor Co.Ltd. Adding the recent proceeds, Max.ng has successfully raised $8.5 million so far.

MAX is building technology infrastructure and financial services to make mobility safe, affordable and accessible to 1 billion Africans

The Nigerian firm, according to co-founder Adetayo Bamiduro, “is building technology infrastructure and financial services to make mobility safe, affordable and accessible to 1 billion Africans.”

MAX targets the sub-Saharan Africa market which it values at $80 billion. In West Africa, the startup will settle in Ghana and Côte d’Ivorie and add new types of vehicles, such as watercrafts and three-wheeler taxis, to its fleet.

It should be noted that this year alone, two Nigerian mobility startups, Gozem and Kobo360, entered the Togolese market. MAX could thus be the next.
